I have to admit that the Royal Enfield has some appeal to me - but not as my primary bike. I would invest in some tools and a bike lift at the same time - and consider the wrenching a new hobby. With a good break-in, and some debugging time it might develop into a reliable ride - at any rate, you could count on it as a conversation starter... ... Come to think of it, if they would begin building vintage bug-eye Sprites in India, I could be a prospect for them as well.



Cheers from Pensacola, FL

If you think the new ones are bad just try a '64 750 Interceptor.

Ural... Ariel... what difference would it make? Both have about the same reliability.

I applaud your willingness to tinker with the Bullet. I enjoy tinkering with old bikes also. However I've got enough trouble keeping a '39 Plymouth and a '71 Cutlass Convertible running to bite off a Royal Enfield as well. I'm sticking with more modern two wheelers until I can pickup a shovelhead basket case. Of course then I'll have to sell both the Plymouth and the Cutlass to have enough time to keep a Shovel running.
